Mine came out custard-like, not bars. But it was yummy!

Came out great!! I used homemade choke cherry jam in place of the raspberry and tastes great!

If you like custard, this is good, but don't expect it to look like the picture. Mine looked nothing like the picture. My suggestions: add a cup of fresh raspberries to the flour mixture, bake for 35 minutes, and let cool. Spoon into bowls and top with whipped cream. (I've added a picture of my custard.)

I used 1/4 cup of lemon and a 1/4 cup of lime instead of 1/2 cup of lemon juice and it worked out just great. I also used lime for the icing. This was excellent, everyone really liked it and said the lime probably worked out better.

Delicious. I had fresh Raspberries on hand so I created my own "spread". Worked great. The Lemon and Raspberry flavors together was lip smacking, talk about tart, and give me a gallon of milk to go with because they are really delicious.

Mmm, these were super good. Mine did not look like the picture. They ended up looking like normal Lemon Bars so i sprinkled powdered sugar on the top. Did not put on the glaze. SO good.

This recipe is great! I've used other jams and it adds so much flavor. Definitely a go-to when having people over. Super easy.
